difference between free energy and standard free energy

Can someone explain the difference between G and standard G? I think Dr. Lavelle mentioned something about the difference between them when they equal to 0 but can't remember.

(Isothermal)reversible expansion at constant temperature

Can someone explain the expansion of an ideal gas for me? I understand the lost energy getting recovered by the heat from the surroundings but can't understand how the work takes place in the beginning and how the mass decreases slowly.
